In Piedmont: Family Health Center neighborhood health fair – 26 Queen St.!!!!!

 

Family Health Center of Worcester, Inc. welcomes you to join us for our annual Neighborhood Health Fair on Friday, August 15, at 26 Queen Street, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Our health fair theme, β€œOne Big Happy Family,” celebrates the global family located right here in our community.

We hope you can join us as a partner for this exciting, fun, family-oriented event that will rejoice in the vibrancy and diversity of the Worcester community.

The Neighborhood Health Fair is an outdoor event held at 26 Queen Street which promotes health, fitness, and fun while educating the public about Family Health Center of Worcester and local agencies and services.

Family Health Center staff will offer health screenings and insurance enrollment assistance to interested community members and there will be food, music, games, balloons, face painting, and much more. The event also includes many exciting raffles at no cost to attendees. Last year, through the generosity of our donors, we were able to raffle adult and youth bicycles and tricycles all with safety helmets and several back-to-school backpacks full of school supplies.

The Neighborhood Health Fair is held annually during National Community Health Center Week, which takes place this year August 10-16, 2014.

Community Health Center Week celebrates the unique and important role that community health centers play by ensuring everyone has access to high quality health care, regardless of ability to pay. In 2013 alone, Family Health Center provided health care services to more than 33,000 people in the Worcester community in 37 languages.
